“Site” is the venture from Jeremy Weintraub (the longtime Seavey winemaker). He sources from the best “Sites” in California. This latest Viognier is just a good example. The 2018 Site Viognier is sourced from the Larner Vineyard. The Larner Vineyard would be considered a “Grand Cru” if it was located in France, some other great wineries purchase from this vineyard as well (Paul Lato, etc.)
The wine is on the list at French Laundry, Benu, Michael Mina and some other high-end Bay Area Restaurants. So I am lucky to have a wine of this caliber in my portfolio as well.
Accolades: “Top Grand Cru Vineyards in California by Wine Spectator ~ Top Five California Vineyards by Wall Street Journal ~ Top 25 Vineyards in the World by Wine & Spirits ~ California’s Best Single Vineyards by Wine Enthusiast ~ Top 5 Vineyards You Can Trust by Pinot Report ~ Ten Best Vineyards by Food & Wine, etc.”
Winery Notes: “This wine offers lovely notes of white flowers, chamomile, and honeysuckle. The mouth is fresh and lively and carries a long finish. It fermented and aged in two neutral barrels and I stirred the lees throughout the aging process.”
